Mmm, that sort of mind-warp takes thought and effort. So a modicum of intelligence is required. Not much more than a dog finding a biscuit under a plate. But some. :sarcasm:

Saw a description of testimony from maybe Missouri where they were debating a trans bathroom bill. Somone trotted out a list of 6 women who were attacked by men in the bathroom. They were asked, how many of these were carried out by trans women?

Um, none.

So what's the relevance?

I've never seen anyone work so hard to reveal her stupidity to the world as that woman. But, damn, she's does it well.

I'm ...shudder...picturing the result of a mating between TMT and Tommy Tuberville.

In case you weren’t sure if Greene is a racist and white supremacist, she hopes this clears it up for you:

GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Speaks At White Nationalist Conference

I’m also happy to report that her standing with the Republican Party remains: Good.

I didn't see this previously, but it's from a couple weeks ago. emptyg explaining her word slip-up on her Congressional (non-banned) Twitter account.
Quote:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene @RepMTG
Some of us slip up a word every now and then, but Joe Biden doesn’t even know the words coming out of his mouth practically all the time. The good news is that the people know the difference. So in the famous words of some one I hold dear.. Covfefe! Twitter link

Not just her; Idiot Paul Gosar spoke via video link. How could they not now that Fuentes is a white supremacist?

Quote:

During Friday's event, Fuentes remarked: "Now they're going on about Russia and Vladimir Putin is Hitler—they say that's not a good thing." He and the audience then laughed loudly before he added, "I shouldn't have said that!"

Fuentes went on to lead the audience in chants in favor of Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Can we give a round of applause for Russia?" he asked the attendees who cheered for Russia's leader.
Liz Cheney:

Quote:

As Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene and Rep Paul Gosar speak at this white supremacist, anti-Semitic, pro-Putin event, silence by Republican Party leaders is deafening and enabling.

All Americans should renounce this garbage and reject the Putin wing of the GOP now.

Either way she loses. Either she speaks at a white supremist event knowingly or she is dumb enough not to check out who she speaks with.

And Mitt Romney on CNN this morning.

Romney's comment that got the headlines:

Quote:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Sunday slammed a pair of House Republicans after they attended a conference hosted by a prominent white nationalist over the weekend.

"Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar, I don't know them," Romney said during an appearance on CNN. "I'm reminded of the old line from the 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' movie, where one character says, 'Morons, I have morons on my team.'"

Two GOP congresspeople just spoke at a pro-Hitler rally. That's not an exaggeration, and apparently, the Republican party is fine with it.

If you are wondering about Nick Fuentas,.the guy whose group MTG spoke at:

Whatta Guy.

SOme of the MTG cult is saying she went to speak to the audience, not support Fuentas organization, but that sort of ignores the question of who the hell would attend a White Supremists group?

Like it matters. She spoke at the fashy AFPAC one night, "mainstream" CPAC the next. For all the protestations from conservatives like Romney, the boundary between mainstream conservatives and edgy white nationalists largely doesn't exist anymore.

MTG taking fire from GOP House members today, including McCarthy who said he will have a "talk" with her.
How many freaking talks has McCarthy had with her? She is not going to quit her antics, and she seems to enjoy pissing off "establishment" Republicans.

Has Trump ever once criticized MTG or taken her to task for anything? No. Just the opposite. At CPAC yesterday: "A person who is very shy, doesn't like speaking her mind, but she does it anyway Marjorie Taylor Greene."

Shy? Doesn't like speaking her mind? Since when?

There has to be a brain lobe to conduct an otomy on first. I have yet to see any evidence of an actual brain in there, or at least one as we know it.

And it's Biden's fault. She would have known what her views are if Trump was still POTUS.
